More Insight Problems: June 3, 2014

I have added some more insight problems for our readers and I will have the answers tomorrow. I hope you find these as challenging as I did !!!

 (1) Dancing: Three couples went together to a party. One woman was dressed in red, one in green, and one in blue. Each man was wearing one of these colors. When all three couples were dancing, the man in red was dancing with the woman in blue. “Isn’t it funny Christine, not one of us is dancing with a partner dressed in the same color.” Think about the man who is dancing with the woman in red. What color is he wearing?

(2) Coin: One archaeologist reported finding a Roman coin with Julius Caesar’s image on it, dated 21 B.C. Another archaeologist correctly asserted that the find was a fraud. Why?

(3) Widow: Is it legal for a man to marry his widow’s sister? Why or why not?

 (4) Box: What was Lewis Carroll talking about in this poem? John gave his brother James a box: About it there were many locks. James woke and said it gave him pain; So he gave it back to John again. The box was not with lid supplied, Yet caused two lids to open wide. And all these locks had never a key – What kind of box, then, could it be?
